I purchased this engine at auction on 9 August 2003. This engine is a Type DX of 6hp. This engine was shipped from Stover Engine Works on December 9 1913 to Invincible Motor Const. Co, Sydney.
I am missing the transporter for this engin. Any help with finding one would be greatly appreciated.
The engine has a bore of approx. 5.5 inches, stroke 10 inches, and the flywheels have a diameter of 39 inches with a 2.5 inch face.
The Stover as seen at the auction
On the trailer heading home.
The head removed for inspection
The cylinder looks OK but someone has cut three of the studs off to remove the head.
The ignitor will clean up fine with a bit of work
The fuel pump drive. The pump mounts on the flat section of the crankcase.
The cam gear. The missing govenor detent mounts on the post behind the gear
Part of one govenor mount is missing and the key has been removed from one flywheel.
30 August 2003. Picked up a fuel pump body, govenor detent/ speed controller and a spare set of govenors from Edd Payne.
Close up of the head showing the fuel saver mechanism.
This engine was sadly sold in October 2010 to pay for other projects.
This engine is virtually identical to what mine should look like!
